Water Softeners

Hard water is a common problem for many homeowners throughout North Carolina. This term refers to water that has a high level of dissolved minerals, specifically calcium and magnesium. While municipal water treatment plans and well-water filtration systems remove dangerous minerals and impurities to make water safe for consumption, hard water is still a widespread issue. 

While you can use vinegar or other cleaning products to remove scale buildup in a coffeepot or in your tub, it’s much more difficult to mitigate the effects of hard water in your home’s plumbing. A water softener can significantly improve the quality of your tap water, removing dissolved minerals and reducing the negative effects of hard water.

How Do You Know If You Have Hard Water?

It’s fairly simple to tell if you have hard water coming out of your home’s faucets. You don’t need to take samples and test them for dissolved minerals; simply look for common side effects of hard water:

  • Heavy soap scum buildup in sinks and tubs
  • Poor foaming and reduced efficacy of soap and shampoo
  • Laundry issues, including fading and reduced lifespan of clothing
  • Filmy residue on dishes and glasses after washing
  • Mineral scale buildup in pipes, water heaters, and appliances (e.g. coffee makers)
